Sean Thomas, Reporter: 80 kilometers from the actual reactor itself and 60 kilometers from the edge of that zone was Fukushima City, we found a spot there in our own personal reporting that was 1,000 times the acceptable limit, or a safe dosage if you will.

This was on a spot where kids walked to school, and here I am not in any particular safety gear, but I’m in an area that the government says it’s safe to be.

So certainly very eerie to be in a place that’s supposed to be safe, but obviously with our radiation detectors, a very dangerous place to be.

    You didn't get this kind of coverage after Chernobyl. Japanese society is going to explode some day…what will be the straw that breaks Tepcos back?

      Fallout did not miss anything north and east. There will come a time when comparisons to Chernobyl will end because history has not fully associated Chernobyl to a humanity changing event. When the F word is put into its proper sphere of importance, people will know that it was it that put the lasting scar on the protoplasm of humanity.

    Fukushima Is Already Harming Our Children

    Thyroid abnormalities have now been confirmed among tens of thousands of children downwind from Fukushima. They are the first clear sign of an unfolding radioactive tragedy that demands this industry be buried forever.

    Radiation can be slow to cause cancer, taking decades to kill.

    But children can suffer quickly. Their cells grow faster than adults'. Their smaller bodies are more vulnerable. With the embryo and fetus, there can never be a "safe" dose of radiation. NO dose of radiation is too small to have a human impact.

    Fukushima's airborne fallout came to our west coast within a week of the catastrophe. It's a virtual certainty American children are being affected. As health researcher Joe Mangano puts it: "Reports of rising numbers of West Coast infants with under-active thyroid glands after Fukushima suggest that Americans may have been harmed by Fukushima fallout. Studies, especially of the youngest, must proceed immediately."

      Fukushima Is Already Harming Our Children

      “Untold billions of gallons of unmonitored liquid poisons have poured into the Pacific. Contaminated trash has carried across the ocean (yet the US has ceased monitoring wild-caught Pacific fish for radiation).
      “Worldwide, atomic energy is in rapid decline for obvious economic reasons. In Germany and elsewhere, Solartopian technologies—wind, solar, bio-fuels, efficiency—are outstripping nukes and fossil fuels in price, speed to install, job creation, environmental impact, reliability and safety.
      “No one has yet measured the global warming impacts of the massive explosions and heat releases at Fukushima (or at Chernobyl, where the human death toll has been estimated in excess of a million).
      “The nuclear fuel cycle—from mining to milling to enrichment to transportation to waste management—creates substantial greenhouse gases. The reactors themselves convert ore to gargantuan quantities of heat that warm the planet directly, wrecking our weather patterns in ways that have never been fully assessed….”

    The radiation is everywhere, all over the place, blowing downwind to the U.S, continuously.

    You can't escape it.

    "Radiation is Strong
    Radiation is Powerful
    It does not discriminate
    and you can't beat it.
    Radiation is scary
    Radiation is dangerous
    You can't see it or smell it
    You can't run from it"

    Had to repost this video.

        Right you are japan guinea pig …

        And Markww … don't forget who taught/paid/convinced the Japanese authorities how to lie to their guinea pig subjects … it was U. S. Nucleocrats from 'dark force' U. S. Megacorporations like GE and Westinghouse who did this nasty disservice … We are complicit!!!

        Get this right, so we can move ahead, together!!!

        Down with nuclear power: the new capitalist/fascist Holocaust!!!

        peace! …

    I know Mark's comments and I think he meant Japanese officials will lie until there is only one last person living left to lie to.
